If you love to bake, or if you used to love to cook, but haven’t done a lot of it lately because it’s become such a hassle, then purchasing an Artisan Stand Mixer by KitchenAid should be something you should seriously wish for. The Artisan Mixer has been referred to as both a tank and the Volvo of stand mixers. It has the power to make both a beginner or an advanced cook a true kitchen artist. The Artisan Mixer can do much more than just mix, and it is very good at what it does. If you’re looking for a mixer that delivers in terms of both quality and longevity, you can’t go wrong with the Artisan Mixer.
One of the best aspects of the Artisan by KitchenAid is how fantastic it looks. The mixer is heavy, so you won’t enjoy having to take it out and put it back away. However, you’ll want to leave it on your counter; people see an Artisan KitchenAid mixer and they always rave about it. Your family will be jealous, and you’ll be able to complete recipes quickly that before would have been nearly impossible. The KitchenAid stand mixer comes in many different colors, from tangerine to imperial grey, allowing you to match your new appliance with your kitchen.
When purchasing an Artisan Stand Mixer by KitchenAid, keep a few things in mind. You’ll want to get one with a smooth finish, otherwise it will be much harder to clean. With the smooth finish, it’s as easy as wiping down the Artisan Stand Mixer with a washcloth, and you’re done. Also, the steel bowl is absolutely smooth and so there are peintre 94 no real ridges inside the bowl for anything to stick to. The attachments that come with the Artisan Stand Mixer twist off in an easy one-handed motion, but not all of them are dishwasher compatible.
Another issue that keeps many people from purchasing the Artisan by KitchenAid is the price. On Amazon they range anywhere from $225 to $350. Keep in mind though, there is nothing, absolutely no other mixer that even comes close to being of the quality and durability that even the most casual kitchen artist would need. You can buy a cheap stand mixer every couple of years for the rest of your life, but if you’d like to make it a one-time purchase and then not have to worry about buying another stand mixer ever again, the Artisan Stand Mixer by KitchenAid is the only way to go.
Performance of the Artisan
The unique mixing action of the Artisan Stand Mixer is one of the things that make the KitchenAid one of the most powerful and useful appliances on the market. The beater spins clockwise as the shaft spins counter clockwise, moving the beater to sixty-seven different points around the bowl. This unique mixing action creates a thorough blend of ingredients and eliminates the need to rotate the bowl.
The bowl on the Artisan Stand Mixer by KitchenAid locks into place, so you won’t have to fret about the bowl flying off the counter if you want to work on another process while the KitchenAid is mixing. You can also utilize ten different speeds, so it’s easy to select the precise speed needed for a inspired mix.
Most Artisan Mixers come out of the box ready to mix, and allow you to beat a single egg white to stiff peaks in the 5-quart bowl. You won’t have to worry about any ingredients sitting on the bottom or the sides of the bowl unmixed. However, if you do need to adjust the Mixer, it is extremely non-complicated involving a screw that you can manipulate with nothing more than a dime.
Although some people see the weight of the all-steel constructed Artisan Mixer as a downside, the weight of the mixer keeps it from shifting across your counter, no matter how heavy the ingredients mixing are. Most other mixers on the market are famous for walking, and if you turned your back on them for too long or left the room, you may come back to find your mixer and all your ingredients spilled across your kitchen floor.
